Recurring Event Event Series: “Hands on a Hardbody”

“Hands on a Hardbody”

September 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT

“Hands on a Hardbody” runs September 2nd through 25th, Thursday-Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm.

Coronado Playhouse is driving off into the summer sunset with the unique and fun musical, Hands on a Hardbody! Bringing a little bit of the Lone Star State to the West Coast, this country and soulful production will have the audience clapping their hands, even if the contestants – actors – can’t.

For ten hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, contestants fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest, only one winner can drive away with the American Dream. Inspired by the true events of the acclaimed 1997 documentary which was adapted into a musical commissioned by La Jolla Playhouse.

Community Spotlight Partner

Coronado Playhouse is committed to giving back to the local community beyond quality entertainment and using its public platform to help those in need. During the run, the Playhouse’s community spotlight partner is the San Diego chapter of Survivors of Suicide Loss (SOSL). SOSL reaches out to and supports people who have lost a loved one to suicide. It is devastating and confusing to lose a spouse, a child, a sibling, a relative, a friend to suicide, and they are here to help people cope with the aftermath of such a loss. They provide support services that offer hope, comfort, and healing to those in grief from suicide loss and we promote suicide awareness and prevention.
